I gave this hotel 5 stars last time I stayed here, and imagine I will next time we stay. Great pool, very comfortable rooms and beds, good staff, clean, etc. Fridge and microwave in room, cookies and tea in lobby, great breakfast with lots of variety. The only reason it got 4 stars this time is that they were having...

Nice stay, used the hot tub to relax. Little high on the chlorine, but very doable. Would live to see a bar inside this hotel. I didn't get a chance to use the game room as it was out of order but maybe next time.

All the staff were friendly and welcomed you while you walk through the facility. It also has a portable lift to assist handicap visitors into the pool...

The Country Inn and Suites is conveniently located just off I-94 near the Chicago area. The room was comfortable and clean and the staff members were friendly, helpful and efficient. It's a good stop on the way to your destination.

This is the third year that we have stayed in this hotel Christmas night. We like this hotel because it is very clean and the staff is friendly. This year we had reserved a king suite, but they no longer allow roll-a-way beds, so we had to switch to a queen suite with a sofa bed. Thankfully they did not...

Stayed here for a local wedding. Could not have been more pleased with the accommodations. Easy check-in, the meeting room was offered up for pre- and post-wedding activities. Noon checkout time was most appreciated.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are located near the the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and just 1 mile from Portage's Riverwalk beach park. We are a family friendly hotel with a large aquatic center featuring a kiddie pool, hot tub, swimming pool and an arcade area. We offer a great free breakfast every morning that includes fresh homemade waffles, various hot items like sausage and eggs as well as lots of fruits and cereals. We are just 45 minutes from downtown Chicago with great rail service available daily until midnight or later. The famed Lighthouse Outlet mall is less than 20 minutes away as are numerous casinos. Portage is a great place to vacation or just visit. Our beaches are second to none and our people are friendly and always inviting.. The famed Steel Mills of NW Indiana are just minutes away from the hotel so business clients are always welcomed. Specially negotiated rates are available for all contractors and vendors doing business with the mills. ... more   less
